Google Thanksgiving Doodle
By on November 23rd, 2011

Google’s Thanksgiving Doodle allows you to decorate your own holiday turkey without all of the mess! In a matter of seconds, you can customize your turkey to your exact tastes. Pictured below is an example of what you’ll see when you go to Google.com today.

Google's Turkey DoodleThe Thanksgiving Doodle is really cute and fun. I look forward to showing this one to my kids. The doodle is interactive and allows you to decorate your turkey just the way you want. The turkey can be completely customized. You can even click each feather to change it to the color you want. You can click the turkey’s hair to get a variety of styles. You can also click the feet and choose from a wide variety of styles. My personal favorite is the roller skates. If you want a real surprise, click the turkey’s wing. I won’t spoil it for you.

This particular Google Doodle has a social networking aspect to it. Once you have made your turkey just the way you want it to be, click the “g+ share” button at the bottom. You will get the dialog pictured below.

Google Plus ShareThis will allow you to share your turkey design with your Google+ circles. If you don’t have Google+ you will be prompted to create an account.

If you don’t have a Google+ account, and you don’t want to create one, you can share your turkey a different way. Pictured below, you can see that there is a “link” option at the bottom of the Google Doodle. If you click this, a URL will pop out to the side and you can copy and paste it into an email or Facebook post.

  • But wait, there’s more!

    Not only that, but the doodle is an Easter-egg generating machine. If you create a Wizard turkey, for instance, it will reward you with a Poof! and…well, you try it. We’ve figured out the football player, the pirate, even an astronaut, all with little bonus images. Can’t get the surfer or nerd/geek to give us anything, and what are the silver/spotted feathers for?!?
